This build has nine known issues:
- Starting games that use anti-cheat software can trigger an error check (GSOD).
- If you use third-party apps to customize the color of your screen, we've corrected this build to address secure feedback. Apps stopped working.
- Display calibration scenarios may have monitors missing in the built-in color management application. To work around this issue, use the Settings app to select the color profile on the Display Settings page instead.
- If you run this PC reset and select the option Keep my files on a device with reserved memory enabled, the user will need to start the action an additional reboot to make sure that Reserved Storage is working properly again.
- Some Realtek SD card readers do not work properly.
- The color of the mouse cursor may be set to white incorrectly after logging off and logging in again.
- Creative X -Fi sound cards do not work properly.
- Investigating an issue that prevents VMware from installing or updating Windows Insider Preview builds. Hyper-V is a viable alternative.
- If you install one of the last builds of Skip Ahead and switch between Fast Ring or Slow Ring, the optional content, for example, fails. For example, enabling developer mode fails. You must stay in the Fast Ring to add / install / activate optional content. This is because the optional content can only be installed in builds that are allowed for specific rings.
Do not install them as usual on your production machine.
